The Federated Cloud
At Arjuna we believe that IT services will increasingly be delivered by a complex, interconnected network of federated service providers. Providers will consume services from each other, organisations will cooperate together to share services to mutual advantage, cloud service brokerage and trading will be commonplace. We believe that much of the complexity in federated networks will come from the need to manage service agreements between organisations. The current lack of support for service agreements represents a significant barrier to the uptake of the cloud by organisations who understand that change is an inevitable aspect of any business.
